Pursuing the Right Path Toward Happiness
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps Proverbs 16:9.
The pursuit of happiness is really a pursuit of satisfaction. So often, we chase fun fix after fun fix, in hopes of experiencing those moments of euphoria. But the reality is those moments are temporary. What God wants for all of us is lasting satisfaction.
Experiencing lasting satisfaction starts with understanding the reality that God has a plan for our lives—a plan that leads to much more than momentary euphoria. Have you come to a point of realizing that God’s plan is far better than any plan you can come up with? Surrender to His plan, and discover more than happiness!
Thank God for His plan and purpose for your life. Ask Him for the discipline and dedication to pursue His plan above all others.
Make a list of things you chase in your pursuit of happiness. Throughout this week, ask yourself if those things line up with God’s plan for your life. Are they pointing you to the satisfaction God wants you to experience?
